Never did much like their site anyway. Too much fluff and special offers to add hosting and other crap when all you want is a plan old domain name.

oh good !

I've been noticing alot of net advertising by NS for domain names for the amazingly high price of $19.95 per year

at least a few n00bs have been saved, and hopefully went somewhere else to register

Custom Web Sites! Yeah

Focus people, focus! You were the only registrar and companies with more focus like godaddy waltzed in a screwed you.

Domains are a commodity, focus on commoditized domain and hosting services ... like godaddy. Oh yeah, and hot babes washing windows -- also a commodity.
